Lyft PPZ (personal power zones) a scam to steal more money from the driver?

Lyft eliminated PT (Prime Time) and introduced PPZ (Personal power zones) all over the country. Is this more of a money grab out of the drivers pocket? Do you have screenshots of Lyft keeping 50-70% of the fare and paying you peanuts? Is Lyft still charging PT to the passenger and keeping it all for themselves?

    Yes, it is another Lyft money grab.  

    Passengers are still charged primetime with multipliers, but drivers get compensated with flat rate incentives if they accept rides within their "personal power zones."

      Lyft's percentage take rate is up to 70% on a lot of rides, it was crazy last night in Los Angeles. Uber was surging 5x while Lyft was charging 400 PT to the pax without passing it on. I have more screenshots than I care for.
